Latest Election Betting
… if you extrapolated straight trendlines from the last few days, the Coalition would overtake Labor by about the 12th of August. The Coalition isn’t much better placed numerically than it was a fortnight ago but it is certainly on the move down. Labor hasn’t really been affected too much but there’s obviously something very nasty lurking in Julia’s woodshed. It’s probably time now for Labor to actually take this election on, lash out and hit a few boundaries and stop playing Geoffrey Boring Boycott to Abbott’s Rodney Hogg. (On the other hand, England defeated Yallop’s collapsible cricketers 5-1 in that ’78-9 Ashes series, so … bad example? What analogy would you use?)
